The vehicle is usually driven by diesel engines. The hydrostatic transmission works in most cases, hydraulic pumps, sometimes with mechanical gearbox.
Wherein the operation with hydraulic pump is easier and the working speed is better controlled. There are also sometimes mixed systems used. The lifting is done mechanically and include processes such as turning, driving rockers and hydraulic. There are differences between mobile cranes, (vehicle) loading cranes, mobile cranes and crawler cranes. We use mobile crane frequently when the use of a fixed crane is not possible or no power supply is available. Some cranes can lift heavy loads even as tower cranes.For All Courses Info call 0430 103 357 or use contact form to get in touchTraining for a crane licence is extensive exercise. Most training schools or registered training organizations – RTO – provide 4 – 7 day course in any crane class – cn,cv,c2,c6,c1 or co crane licence.

It also depends how much about cranes applicant already knows, if he/she holds any dogging ticket or any lower crane classes; then it is decided what type of crane licence training needs to be delivered to the applicant in question.Crane training happens usually on one crane, suitable for the applicable crane licence class that applicant is applying for, so the person in question will not get training for all possible versions, it is up to them and their future employers to deliver crane training on a particular machine before operator starts the new crane operators job.Theory in crane training covers all aspects of applicable regulations and exercise – calculations task.Practical part in crane training includes hazard identification, planing for the task, set up, transferring the load, pack up and shut down of the crane according to manufacturer’s guidelines.

Load chart includes a lot of information, but in general it is used to determine what weight crane can lift at what radius in given configuration. Load chart variables are: type and weight of hook block, type and legth of boom and boom extension (fly), number of reevings, applicable counterweight(s), applicable deductions, outriggers base, wind speed restrictions etc. Operator must be very careful in reading the load chart as any mistakes might end in a potential disaster.
